    How to remove entries from current boot menu

    I have the following entries in my system start up:

    Windows 10
    Windows 10
    Windows 7

    How do I remove the last two entries so startup just shows one Windows 10 only or just boots right into Windows 10 without a start screen ?

    You can use msconfig. Type + R and msconfig in the box hit ok click on the boot tab highlight the os you want to be the default(note that the os you are using is called current os), click on "set as default" and click apply and ok then set the timeout box (still in that tab) to zero seconds and reboot. This will retain everything in case you ever want to go back. But you will not see the boot screen at startup since the amount of time the boot screen is shown will be set to zero seconds.
